Aisha Elmsellah

Head Chef

Aisha Elmsellah

Our chef Aisha has been cooking up delicious food for our community every week since we first opened in 2018.

Aisha moved from Libya to London in 2012, fleeing war. Cooking around the city has been a core part of building her new life in London. Among other projects like ours, Aisha has cooked with Amnesty’s Welcome Cinema + Kitchen integration events.

At WLW Aisha leads our kitchen team of five to regularly try out different cuisines. She loves to cook dishes from a wide range of countries because it allows her to experiment. But her favourite kitchen concoctions are Libyan dishes – a piece of home.
